About the Book:
When the spirits of the afterlife return, the world reacts and learns how to use them to the advantage of the people. But use the incarcerated element to do the dirty work, only to find out what the consequences are to those that interact with the spirits.
This story is about what happens when the spirits return but there is no one around to send them away? You figure out a way to make the spirits work for you by collecting their ectoplasm and use it in experiments that benefit the living. I found this to be intriguing.
I think that the story has potential, as it explores something that is not something addressed in the movies. What happens with the stuff left behind when the ghost’s interact with objects?
I liked the cover art as it shows where this particular story takes place, but also resembles a movie poster in a way. With the style of a movie poster it hints at a horror story or suspense thriller setting, which depending on the story I also find intriguing.
The interior artwork matches the cover quite nicely, which adds to the immersion that I experienced reading the story. Making the story easy to follow and does not distract from the story itself, but enhances it to a certain degree with subtle details.
Overall I think that this story could have a lot of potential and something worth following if you like a good suspenseful story centered around the paranormal.
